Experimental Models for Shower Pavilion

As an added intervention to the experimental master plan of GARLIC house, an enclosure to hold the shower and Jacuzzi area was attempted in the form of paper model experiments, inspired by our study of the existing Flora on site. Following the

Guard House

Several studies were carried out on the formal exploration of the program of the guard house and storage units. The density of existing trees onsite required the experimentation with prefabricated panels as a material to realize a rather eccentric structure.

Enviromental Strategy

Environmental analysis has been carried out to simulate the shade and shadow on the facade of the family house. The design considered the results of these calculations. We are working with environmental consultants Eco Consulting, as well as with electromechanical
